Background

The building's entrance


Saying Hollywood is a popular location for luxury residences is like saying water is wet. It is an understatement of tremendous proportions.

Thus, it should come as no surprise when the developers of Hollywood not only chose to place it smack in the middle of the famous region, but also chose to use the region itself as a namesake. A bold move, to say the least; luckily, the structure seems more than up to the task of living up to the expectations that stem from its name and location, and the residents are all better for it.

A mid-rise condominium with five floors and 54 units, Hollywood is noticeably smaller than the average Los Angeles apartment building. While there is no doubt that it is certainly a far cry from the glass and steel skyscrapers that dot the city's busiest streets, that fact remains that size alone is rarely a good criterion for judging buildings like these. Its lesser unit count does not preclude Hollywood from offering a wide range of amenities to make life easier on its residents. It must be pointed out that its location places it near many famous Hollywood landmarks and attractions, all of which have some kind of link to the city's storied history.

With so many advantages to living there, it should come as no surprise that Hollywood is an excellent choice for the prospective homeowner, especially one who wants a living experience that can only be described as unforgettable.[1]

Location

Located in the heart of Hollywood, there is certainly no lack of sights to see nearby. For instance, Hollywood finds itself close to Grauman's Chinese Theater, a movie theater whose reputation and cachet have transcended what they started out as, leaving it a must see Los Angeles landmark for anyone with an appreciation of Hollywood's early days. For those who enjoy shopping, there are a myriad of boutiques and retail businesses nearby to serve their needs. Should a full day of shopping prove to be tiring, Hollywood also finds itself close to a variety of outdoor parks, allowing residents to simply decompress and enjoy the outdoors.[2] Noted universities UCLA and USC are within driving distance.

Residents of Hollywood will not need to use their cars should they not wish to. There are a variety of businesses and stores within walking distance, as well as 11 bus routes and one light rail station serving the area. Any avid cyclists, however, should know that the terrain is somewhat hilly, and there are minimal bike lanes. Thus, if one intends to use a bike as a primary means to transportation, exercising caution is key.[3]

Construction

A modern condominium with retro influences in its architecture, Hollywood is definitely a unique building. The brainchild of Stephen Kanner, the former president of the American Institute of Architects of Los Angeles, Hollywood shows off its lineage proudly.

The wood paneled exterior lends a touch of sophistication to the structure, while the irregular spacing of the window panes blends in an air of whimsy and spontaneity. The prominent use of wood paneling in the units lets the interior exude the same sense of class as the exterior, and the uniformity of design really does end up being one of Hollywood's strengths.

Layout and Features

Hollywood's 54 units only come in two and three bedroom configurations. They do, however, have somewhat of a premium on size, as the smallest unit is 1160 square feet; a fairly generous number. For comparison, the largest units in Hollywood are 2220 square feet.

The units come well equipped, with standard features such as floating cabinets supplied by Pedini Piacere della Cucuina, stainless steel appliances, Caesar-Stone counter tops, and hardwood floors. Other features include fireplaces and balconies.[4]

Floor Plans

Hollywood does not currently offer floor plans for public viewing. Luckily for prospective residents, there is video footage showing most of the building's highlights, giving viewers a good look at what Hollywood as to offer.

Sustainability

There is no indication that Hollywood was designed to be particularly green; thus, it falls on the residents to reduce their impact on the environment.

Recycling regularly is a great way to do this, as is cutting down on excessive water or electricity use. Taking full advantage to Los Angeles' public transit is another fantastic way to reduce one's carbon footprint as well, especially considering all the damage cars can do to the air.

Trivia

  • Units are patterned after Manhattan hotel rooms[6]
